Bottle. Poured a yellowish color with a big pillowly white head. Aroma was spices, citrus, fruits, and other grassy earthy aromas. Flavor was spicey and tangy. Very good. Smoother, but had some spicey kick to it. Not a huge fan of this style but this one was better than drinkable.

This poured a clo0udy yellow color with a fluffy white head. Aroma was citrusy, spicey, and signs of brett. Flavor was a very odd blend of sour and sweet, too just too odd of a combination for my liking.

Bottle, with thanks to Tytoanderso. Pours hazy orange, thick white head, stunning lacing, it actually hangs in clumps on thside of the glass. Nose is very ’Avec les Bons Voeux’=esque, tart, with clean malt, cardamom, white pepper, mild alcohol note. flavor is earth, dusty hops, juicy, stale stonefruit character. Good acidity, nice balance, clean, crisp finish.

Thanks to savvy1982 for the share! Pours yellow with a large rocky head. The aroma is lightly bretted with a very phenolic nose and some alcohol showing. The flavor has berries, dark fruit, oats and spice. Full body. Really nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 4, 2010 Pours pale golden yellow with a full white pillowy head. The aroma has a nice lemony/citrusy character undergirded by a decent earthiness. As it sits, some of the citrus fades and gives way to stronger earthiness and hops. The flavor is rather mild with the citrus being most noticeable upfront followed by some of the characteristic earthiness associated with saisons. It finishes a little dry. The flavors were good, but I just couldn’t pull much flavor out this one. I was expecting a pretty good flavor of Brett but this just didn’t deliver.

750mL shared at Carolina Goes Sour. Pours a cloudy bright yellow with a massive white head that has very good retention and crazy lace. Aroma of grapefruit peel, Brett, perfumey hops, ginger root. Taste s fairly sweet, lots of perfume, spices, and Belgian pale ale hoppiness, grassy hops. Dry finish. Very nice!
